Quincy Liburd of Newcastle, Nevis, resided in St. Kitts for a number of years prior to 13th March, 2011. According to reports, sometime before 10:10 p.m. on that day, Liburd was at Paradise Road in Conaree, waiting to collect a relative of his after which, he would have taken him to another destination.
However, as fate would have it, gunmen launched an attack, injuring Liburd and another individual and while the other individual sustained injuries to his legs and hand, Liburd was fatally wounded. He was 29 years old.
“He was a nice person. He never got himself into anything. He went from work to home. He appreciated family and got along well with everybody.” These are the words of Liburd’s brother, Michael Joseph, who is trying to cope with his brother’s untimely and unfortunate death.
Johnson told this media house that his brother moved to St. Kitts some time ago after the closure of the Four Seasons Hotel to take up employment here and although, as he explained, he was called back to work at that hotel when it reopened, “He said he preferred down there (St. Kitts).”
“He moved to St. Kitts because he got a job over here and when Four Seasons reopened, they called him back and he said he didn’t want to come back up. He said he preferred down there.”
The young man says he will miss hearing the sound of his brother’s voice and he will also miss “knowing he is ok”.
It is obvious that Johnson misses his brother and he indicated to MiyVue.com that he last spoke to his brother on Sunday, 6th March, 2011.
“He told me he wanted a bus. He said he wanted to sell the jeep and buy the bus and he told his father he wanted help with the bus…that was last week Sunday, the last time I spoke with him. We spoke about a lot of things; those are personal things I can’t share.”
Although he did not indicate when, Johnson noted that Liburd would be laid to rest in Nevis.
